April showers, along with some heavy storms, will be sweeping into Greece starting on Friday afternoon and lingering through the weekend, the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) has said.

The wet front will come in from the southwest, hitting the Peloponnese and the western coast of the mainland first, before spreading to Crete and the Cycladic islands overnight.
